KOCHI, India, Jan. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In May 2016 Valorem, a digital and cloud solutions company based in Kansas City, Missouri, acquired leading interactive experience firm, IdentityMine and its Kochi, India subsidiary. Under Valorem leadership, the India team has quickly doubled in size with digital engineering, development and design specialists. In order to meet growing market demand, Valorem is moving into a new state-of-the-art facility in SmartCity Kochi (SCK), the newest business IT park in India. With over 8.8 million sq. ft. of buildable space and next-wave ICT infrastructure, the new location adds Valorem to the SmartCity global network alongside many Fortune 500s. SCK provides many perks that have caught the attention of the IT industry including:
- IT dedication: With over 70% of buildable space devoted solely to IT/ITES/allied services, the SCK development will be the largest IT park in the country and is expected to create over 90,000 jobs.
- Stability: SCK is home to large data centers to supply businesses inside the park with 100% data connectivity up time.
- Talent: There are over 125 engineering colleges in the state of Kerala supplying a fresh, highly-skilled talent pool.
Valorem operations have begun in the new 28k sq. ft. space with an official inauguration and visit from the Valorem Leadership team scheduled in January. Upon opening Valorem's India team will almost double in size with the addition of a large group of fresh graduates hired at recent recruiting events. In the interest of providing fast, scalable and around-the-clock, cloud technology solutions for clients, Valorem has an aggressive growth plan over the next 3 years to fill their SmartCity workplace with the best and brightest talent in the area.
2018 holds expansion opportunities for Valorem in the US as well. With a rapidly growing global employee footprint, Valorem supports a truly modern workplace where digitally connected employees can access business information and collaborate with colleagues and clients from anywhere. Flourishing tech communities in major US metropolitan cities like St. Louis, MO and Seattle, WA have led to dense areas of Valorem's remote resources and will likely lead to additional US locations in the coming year.
